The climate of Ouesso (Congo)
Ouesso is the capital of the Ouesso district and the most important
city in the Sangha region. The city is located in the northern part of
the Republic of Congo on the banks of the Sangha River and is one of
the busiest ports on the river. There is a lot of forestry in the
surroundings of Ouesso, from the port the wood is transported to other
parts of the country. This is also why the city has a direct ferry
connection with the capital Brazzaville. Ouesso also has its own
airport. The city is surrounded by rainforests. To protect wildlife
from the emerging wood industry National Park Nouabalé Ndoki was
established here in 1993. Among the animals that live in this park
are: elephants, gorillas, bonobos and several other monkey species.
There are no roads or buildings in the park. Whoever wants to visit
the park can only do so under the supervision of a guide. There are
several organizations that offer trips of one or several days. Ouesso
has a tropical monsoon climate with two distinct dry periods. The
first period is in July, the second period is from December till
February. However, this does not mean there is no precipitation during
these periods. Temperatures are constant all year round. However,
temperatures slightly rise when a rainy period starts.

of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain
period. The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather,
extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate
